Centre of Excellence in Wine Education & Cellar Management


CEWECM-IMBA, is the Centre of Excellence in Wine Education and Cellar Management of the International Montreal Butler Academy.
After having passed the WSET exams, students will be awarded the Level two and Level three Advanced Certificate from UK-based Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET).
Once the WSET training is completed, the students will learn to master the Alfred Sommelier cellar management software, a professional tool especially adapted to the high standards of the IMBA academy and their clients. Whether for investment purposes or simply for pleasure, the acquired cellar management techniques will suit all the needs of any future IMBA alumni employer.
Nowadays, it is expected that a butler will have an understanding of the fine wines, older vintages and special grape varieties that are found in curated wine cellars. 
The wine program will be complemented by the study and the tasting of first growths and iconic wines such as: Lafite, Latour, Yquem etc., old vintages and rare grapes varieties.
Students will learn how to condition these special wines, serve them with elegance and will be trained to plan functions and special events, work with chefs in creating paired menus for all occasions. 
The CEWECM-IMBA wine focused program distinguishes the IMBA and will add tremendous value to any Butler diploma.
More than Fifty thousand Dollars worth of wine will be tasted during the program
